Harrington: Leave Royal British Legion at 9.40am
Workington: Leave Pow Street at 2pm.
Each year Workington Town Council work with the Royal British Legion to organise the Remembrance Parade throughout the town.
The parade assembles as The Royal British Legion in Harrington from 9.30am and leaves at 9.40am.
The parade arrives at St Mary's Church at 9.50am for a service from 10am-10.40am.
Participants then move outside for a short service by the Cenotaph before parading back to the Harrington Royal British Legion. Everyone is welcome back to the Royal British Legion for free pie, peas and gravy following the parade.
The parade will assemble on Pow Street from 1.45pm for a 2pm start.
The parade will then go to Vulcan Park for a service by the Cenotaph. The parade will leave the park and salute The Mayor on Oxford Street, before continuing to Jane Street, where they will fall out outside the Royal British Legion on Jane Street.
There will be no church service after the parade. Everyone is invited back to the Royal British Legion following the parade for free pie, peas and gravy.

AROUND THE TOWN
Look out for the silent solider silhouettes. The silhouettes were first displayed in 2018 as part of the ‘There But Not There’ project but are now displayed annually. The soldiers will be installed at Moss Bay (near the Forgehill estate), Workington Railway Station, Jubilee Corner on Oxford Street, and on Church Road in Harrington.
